All hail the mighty Caesar! Canada’s signature cocktail is getting some time in the spotlight, thanks to the first-ever National Caesar Day on May 14.
The Bloody Caesar in its purest form is made with vodka, Clamato
juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce, and is served in a glass
rimmed with celery salt and a celery or olive garnish. It is the perfect
savoury cocktail to hoist over brunch or happy hour.
Modern legend has the Caesar hailing from Calgary, where it is thought
to have been invented in 1969 by barman Walter Chell to mark the opening
of a new Italian restaurant. The flavours do indeed reflect those of
Spaghetti alle Vongole, or clam pasta.
